In The Blink of An Eye!


Funny how you remember things like they were just yesterday. Katie was born 30 years ago at 1:19 am on a cold December morning. That was probably my ONLY Christmas that I was really ready for. The Women's Axillary group at Long Beach Community hospital sent all the Christmas babies home in these stockings! 


And her big sister Brande was excited as you can see. It was a really a heartfelt Christmas.


Then in the blink of an eye, the time began to fly by. First birthdays. . .


Second birthdays. . .


First grade. . .


Family vacations. . .

Babies of her own celebrating 2nd birthdays at Disneyland. . .


Her two favorite guys in her life. . .


Now not only a Mom, but an Aunt as well. . .


And now all of my family has different titles since we've grown!


But you know, we work together, we argue together (come on, I know you've heard us) but we are still family that loves each other more than any words I can write. We will all gather tonight to celebrate my little Christmas baby's 30th birthday at her favorite restaurant. Happy Birthday Katie, we all love you!!

Happy Birthday Katie!

Its amazing how fast 30 years goes by.
I don't really remember turning 30 maybe cuz I still felt 18 at the time.
But I have a feeling I will remember 40 cuz I don't feel 18 anymore lol
:(

Anyhoo, have fun and party on!
